Media Roundup: Time, Reuters, The Atlantic, The BBC

The recent Hunter Valley Research Foundation Lecture given by Renew Newcastle founder Marcus Westbury has unexpectedly garnered a lot of media attention around the world for its analysis and response to the problem of dysfunctional commercial property markets.

The discussion started was started by Justin Fox, the Economics Ediitor at TIME magazine. It was then picked up by Felix Salmon at Reuters, before being continued by Megan McCardle at The Atlantic — all of whom explicitly referenced Renew Newcastle model. We’re not sure they got all the details down pat but we definatately appreciate the interest.

Also, if you are struggling to follow all that, the BBC’s web monitor has had a go at summarising it all.
